Dying

Dying

A Poem by WindsorWolf28
"

Why is it different?

"
People die
Everyday

So why was this
Different for me?

Oh yeah.
Probably because this time I'm the one who's dying.

They said death took people to a better place,
One with no suffering

That's a lie!
I'm in pain,
Suffering,
Writhing,
Again and again!

I don't know what time this began,
But please!
Can somebody tell me when it will end?

I feel I've been here
For five hours or more,

Where's my rescue?
Or must I suffer more?

They say dead people were happy to pass,
That's also a lie.

This isn't fun,
This isn't comfortable,
And I certainly do not enjoy this!

I see people die very day,
I even tell their families
That they're in no pain.

So why is it different this time?
Oh yeah,
Probably because
This time
It's
Me.

All I can think about
Is the pain I can feel,
The lasting pain!
And wounds that will never heal!

All I can think about
Is the people I will leave,
Why must they endure
A world without me?

Will anyone care?
Now that I'm gone?
Injured and alone,
Laying with a frown

I don't even know
How long it has been?
Where am I?
What position am I in?

This never happened before.
I was perfectly fine
when they walked out the door!

All I can hear is my echoing screams,
Tormenting me, haunting me
With painful dreams.

Please,
Just let it end!
Save me,
My family,
My friend!

Please let me be saved,
Please let me be okay.
Just get me through this night!
...or maybe it's day?

It's always different,
When it's me.

A very nice write, reminds us of our mortality and biases as a society. Shows how truly lonely a dying person is because no one understand that they are suffering until the moment they themselves die. Personally I believe that there is no particularly bad death, thats what makes it so scary (as well as the fact that most of us will be forgotten within a few generations...) I actually heard this on a show not too long ago, but its stuck to me and it perfectly explained the true terror of death that I already had in mind. I enjoyed the read, thank you for entering^^)
